Cork flooring product to be installedAs consumers become more aware of the harmful effects of many commercially available products on the environment, they begin to look for ways to contribute to the collective effort of communities to reduce their environmental footprint. The good news is that even at a household level, there are many things one can do to achieve this goal. For instance, one can choose eco-friendly flooring products, which are produced with environmental safety standards in mind.

At Fine floors by Ed White, we carry sustainable and eco-friendly flooring products made from bamboo, cork, concrete, and glass. These flooring options are some of the most popular products sold in our showroom, and it’s easy enough to understand why this is so. For one thing, they are very reasonably priced, and for another, they are very beautiful. Plus, we have expert design consultants who can help you determine the best product that can enhance your home aesthetically and complement its architectural style in every way.

Bamboo flooring – Bamboo may be a type of grass, but it is the tallest of all grass species in the world. It is also very strong and durable. In fact, its ability to withstand strong winds is the primary reason why it is a quintessential building material in Asia’s monsoon area, where tropical hurricanes are common. Bamboo looks and feels very much like wood. It insulates cold very well, which makes it a great fit for areas of your home where you need warmth and comfort.

Cork flooring – Harvested from the bark of the cork oak, cork is a great flooring material in many ways. First, the cork can be harvested without harming the trees, which can live for up to 250 years. Cork is also impermeable to liquids, and it is also fire-resistant, a quality which helps the trees survive forest fires in the wild. Cork is also naturally elastic, so it is very comfortable on the feet. And don’t even think that cork flooring will make your floors look like a bulletin board! At Fine Floors by Ed White, our cork flooring products come in different colors and textures, so you are sure to find one that truly fits your home.

Glass tile flooring – Glass tiles are not only beautiful, you’ll also be happy to know that most of them come from repurposed wine, beer, and juice bottles. Glass floor tiles are strong, and they have this reflective character that is unique to the material. Furthermore, because they are non-porous, they won’t accumulate impurities that can cause allergies. Making glass tiles out of old bottles is one of the best ways to deal with this particular kind of refuse items.

Concrete flooring – Concrete has been around since the time of the Romans, and today, it is our civilization’s most widely used man-made material. Concrete is what our floors underneath are usually made of, a material that is considered undesirable and thus covered by flooring products like hardwood and carpet. However, concrete floors from Fine Floors by Ed White are nothing like the unfinished concrete that many people know of. Our concrete floors are available in many colors and textures. These are very unique flooring products that are sure to set your home apart from the rest.

Linoleum flooring – Don’t make the mistake of confusing linoleum flooring with vinyl flooring. The latter is made from a petroleum-derived plastic known as polyvinyl chloride, while the former is made from a mixture of natural materials like linseed oil, cork, pine rosin, wood flour, and calcium carbonate. Furthermore, linoleum, like cork, has fire-retardant qualities, making it a great choice for people who are concerned about their family’s safety. Our linoleum floors are available in different colors and designs.
